The Roxie Theater, a San Francisco landmark in the Mission District, brings people together to meet and connect through distinctive cinematic experiences. Guided by the passionate belief that engaging with a movie doesn’t end with the credits, we invite filmmakers, curators, entertainers and educators to interact with our audiences. We provide inspiration and opportunity for the next generation, and serve as a forum for the independent film community reflecting the spirit of the diverse Bay Area population. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.


The Roxie is one of the oldest continuously operated cinemas in the United States, with its history tracing back to the early 1900s.

We continue to shine in our community as a beacon of unwavering independence, originality, and integrity. Guided from the start by crazy visionaries who pursued dreams over profit, we strive to keep the weird and wonderful alive in our little corner of San Francisco.

We invite you to celebrate the spirit and resiliency of The Roxie by joining our Forever Roxie campaign. For over one hundred years, we’ve kept independent cinema an integral part of our little corner of the Mission District, and with your help, we’ll keep it going for over a hundred more. No matter the size of your donation, you will have an impact!
